Flying in to Marrakesh

By maggietear
On our Easyjet flight into Marrakesh our pilot kind of missed the runway so we had to circle! Looking down I was struck by both the arid and the lush aspects of the terrain.
We went there for a special birthday in April 2011 so I decided I would take you there for a few days to show some aspects of Morocco! Apologies to any one who knows it well! Apologies also for the fairly naf image to get us there!

Opportunity well used, this is intriguing. It reminds me of patchwork, with everything so neatly placed. Do you know what the crops are?

Considering you took this out of an aeroplane window, the clarity is magnificent! Very interesting geometric patterns. Well done!

Order out of chaos, Maggie. Amazing how they get the geometry so right (you should see my strawberry patch!!)

The precision in these fields is amazing. A very fine areal shot.
The "kind of missed the runway" must have given you great confidence in that pilot!!!!!

Do you think they nees some of our over spiled water from our rivers???
Well seen well taken..

A bit more water and this arid land would become lush, just like England Maggie.
A friend of mine and I were standing atop and hillside above loch Katrine and he told me about his niece on her first foreign holiday, like your flight, hers was coming in over a forrest and the little girl called out, "Mum Mum look at all the broccoli down there".

The compound is so very much at odds with its surroundings. Very interesting.
